Re: GRANDTULLY DIV 1 29-30 AUGUST 2020

But what Kelso is probably hinting at, is the recent announcement of a return for the Tay Descent in 2020 on the 30th August. Previous Descents have used the campsite as a base and run shuttles for paddlers so camping may be very busy.

Re: Year Book Review - Codes

Similar to others, I have used them for travelling to new (to me) sites or where I have not been for a while to update on local facilities. Would definitely assist if we could come up with some form of easily understood pictograms.

Re: Map references

May be preferable to change from OS Map refs to Lat/Lon ref, these can be taken off the likes of Bing maps by finding the site and right clicking on your desired location then comes up with references - e.g. Alva is 56.145853, -3.782823 which is the entrance off the main road rather than a post code...

Now showing as Prem/Div 1 on Saturday and Div 2/Pan Celtic on Sunday so liable to fill out very quickly - not sure if there would be sufficient time even with summer nights for a full Prem/Div 1 progra...

Re: Seaton Park Slalom

We will be accepting Entries on the day so still time for new paddlers to come and try slalom or look to score some good points before the end of season, all helpful to gain a lower Bib# for 2019.

Re: Calculating points for inquorate, VET and PU

My preference for B4.1.4 is to remove the issue. PU are entered to all the same rule, regulations as the Host paddler and hence points should be calculated on the basis as the host paddler i.e. position relative to starting numbers and maximum divisional points. Currently we have the situation where...

HPP - Car Parking

Given the following is it possible to get some clarification prior to the Prem/Div 1 Race 22-23/Sep. Will it be Peak or Off Peak parking?, If we pay for the day are we allowed to leave and re-enter on the same fee or do we have to purchase a day parking every visit ? Will the system be running on ar...

Re: Boat weights in the past

From memory when we built the boats at school (KW7s, Scorpions and Snipes) we were circa 20kg/boat with a good hand lay-up. I remember as when they introduced roto-moulded river kayaks the roto moulded boats were similar in weight. Professional manufacturers could reduce weight with spray rather tha...
